In 1814 he became a full professor of elementary mathematics at the Lyceum in Olomouc, later he was a professor of physics at the Lyceum in Steyer Graz (1816–1826) and he spent most part of his life in Prague as a professor of higher mathematics. He was also a full member of the Mathematical Class of Königliche böhmische Gesellschaft der Wissenschaften [the Royal Bohemian Society of Sciences].
